FCC tears apart HP TouchPad Go, makes us yearn for webOS

Hp_touchpad_go

Remember webOS? I do, too, and that's why these pictures hurt me so much: I'm staring at something beautiful that never happened. It's the TouchPad Go, HP's 7-inch version of the original TouchPad. The FCC's teardown photos have been made available today, almost nine months after the original filing

Most of the pictures that were released today just confirm what we already knew about the tablet-to-be. There would've been a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB to 32GB of internal storage, and a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 768. Also included would've been a 1.3MP front camera and 5MP rear. 

These photos are really just a reminder of how confused HP was last year. This was obviously a product that was ready to ship to customers, but amid the questions and uncertainty the company had about webOS, the TouchPad Go was never really going to go

Click past the break to view some more of the pictures. But first, you might want to grab a tissue.
